Ordinary Epics

Let me help you define and achieve your goals. Whether you want to increase your confidence on the trails or to train and execute a plan for a multi-day gravel epic, I would love to work with you.

I believe the three biggest reasons to work with a coach are experience, accountability, and efficiency. All of our plans and coaching include mobility work which is critical to success for long days in the saddle.

Sample Day 1

1:00:00
Endurance Ride

Get out there and ride your bike! Keep your heart rate low and maintain a conversational pace.

Sample Day 2

1:30:00
Endurance Ride

Get out there and ride your bike! Keep your heart rate low and maintain a conversational pace. Feel free to push the pace a little harder over the tops of hills.

Sample Day 2

0:10:00
Foam rolling and stretching

Quick rolling and stretching session to keep things loose.

I typically do 10x reps with the roller on my quads, each side to get into the IT bands, hamstrings, and finally the glutes.

If you don't have a foam roller, give the Trigger Point a try. It is one of my favorites.

Sample Day 5

1:00:00
65TSS
Heart Rate Threshold Test

Everyone loves a test! This will give you some numbers to work with to determine your heart rate "zones".

1. Warm up well for 20 minutes

2. Ride in a steady state effort for 30 minutes. This should feel as hard as you can manage for the duration. You should have no or very limited stops. The goal is to get your heart rate up to a steady level for the duration.

3. Cool down for 10-15 minutes.

Sample Day 6

2:00:00
75TSS
2 hours endurance pace

Warm up well then ride at an all day endurance pace mostly in heart rate zone 2 but feel free to push the power over the top of climbs into zone 3. Short cool down just to bring down your HR.
